Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

Young-Ho Khang focuses on Global health, Demography, Years of potential life lost, Gerontology and Mortality rate. His Global health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Statistics & numerical data, Epidemiology, Environmental health and Disease, Disease burden. His Demography research incorporates elements of Life expectancy, Millennium Development Goals, Incidence and Maternal death.

His research on Years of potential life lost also deals with topics like

  • Disability-adjusted life year that connect with fields like Breast cancer, Cancer prevention and Non-communicable disease,
  • Population health that connect with fields like Nutrition transition. The Gerontology study which covers Body mass index that intersects with Obesity and Diabetes mellitus. He interconnects Stroke, Cause of death and Wheeze in the investigation of issues within Mortality rate.

His most cited work include:

  • A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (7776 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6893 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Demography, Environmental health, Life expectancy, Mortality rate and Global health are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Years of potential life lost, Socioeconomic status, Epidemiology and Gerontology in his study of Demography. His work in Environmental health tackles topics such as Risk factor which are related to areas like Relative risk and Prospective cohort study.

As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Life expectancy, focusing on National health and, on occasion, National health insurance. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Verbal autopsy, Disease, Cause of death, Incidence and Pediatrics. His Global health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Developing country, Child mortality, Per capita and Disease burden.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (60.20%)
  • Environmental health (33.55%)
  • Life expectancy (33.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Demography (60.20%)
  • Life expectancy (33.55%)
  • Mortality rate (29.61%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Young-Ho Khang mostly deals with Demography, Life expectancy, Mortality rate, Metropolitan area and Environmental health. His Demography research integrates issues from Body mass index and Malnutrition. His work focuses on many connections between Body mass index and other disciplines, such as Obesity, that overlap with his field of interest in Epidemiology.

His Mortality rate research includes themes of Stroke, Incidence, Community health and Risk factor. His studies in Risk factor integrate themes in fields like Global health, Verbal autopsy, Years of potential life lost and Kidney disease. The concepts of his Environmental health study are interwoven with issues in Psychological intervention, Disease, Cause of death and Substance abuse.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national burden of chronic kidney disease, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (401 citations)
  • Global age-sex-specific fertility, mortality, healthy life expectancy (HALE), and population estimates in 204 countries and territories, 1950–2019: a comprehensive demographic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (41 citations)
  • Measuring universal health coverage based on an index of effective coverage of health services in 204 countries and territories, 1990-2019 : a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019. (39 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Health care

Young-Ho Khang mainly investigates Mortality rate, Demography, Life expectancy, Metropolitan area and Risk factor. The various areas that he examines in his Demography study include Body mass index and Pooled analysis. His Life expectancy study combines topics in areas such as Birth rate, Demographic change, Demographic transition and Small population size.

His Risk factor research includes elements of Global health, Verbal autopsy and Environmental health. His study in Global health is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Developing country, Years of potential life lost, Wasting and Kidney disease. Many of his studies on Environmental health apply to Disease burden as well.
